We all love using storybooks in intervention but the question is: How do we do use them effectively?
Literacy-Based Speech and Language Therapy Activities makes improving your therapy and reducing your planning time a reality. This 200-page book is full of templates, explanations, and examples for you to experience the same success we do with our busy, diverse caseloads.
Section 1 highlights The Research Behind Why Literacy-Based Intervention Works so well.
In Section 2 we learn how to decide if language difficulties are due to an impairment, second-language influence, or cultural difference.
After reading Section 3, you will be able to take any activity including your favorite storybook and design therapy that will last for several weeks. We provide pre-, during, and post-reading explanations and activities to assist in making your literacy-based intervention applicable to all age groups and disorder classes.
Taking data and measuring progress are some of the most difficult things to do well. In Section 4, we walk step-by-step through a child’s story to see what is present or missing, and how to write concrete, measurable goals.
Section 5 is 50 pages of easily reproducible templates to be used individually or in groups.
Lastly, in Section 6, we harness the power of high engagement and make Incredible Games that Match Story Content.
And a bonus! We end this book listing some of the best storybooks for intervention that are divided by age, grade, topic, and goals.
